Here's where to suggest any ideas for awards, nominees, tournaments, etc. Basically if you have an idea and it has anything to do with the awards ceremony or related processes, feel free to post it and we'll have a look at it and consider it and all that good stuff :bowser:

I have an idea for a game. It is chess. It can be fined tuned if needed, but here is the general idea. Two people on a thread play chess. Both must have a standard chess set. Neither should use a computer playing chess to make their moves. The host of the game makes sure that it is played correctly. An unbiased judge to handle this and keep it a proper chess game. This game utilizes the fact that it is against the rules to post twice.

Reposting a suggestion from last year; I think it'd good to link to the Community Awards dossier on the main page alongside the regular Awards polls, like so



This would probably attract a larger base of voters other than active community-goers/'Shroom readers, but I can see how that could have drawbacks as well as benefits so idk

I've actually opened suggestions of having a chess tournament one year, but dropped it due to low interest.

The issue with that in the past has been people who access the main page weren't exactly the audience informed enough to give decent votes, and as such those respective polls were wildly inaccurate and biased. The way it's linked to in the example you gave feels like it could be fine, combined with the fact that Community Awards is now a thing and is a bit of a shift in focus, so this is definitely a thing to look into.

Could we use more a creative name for the "Fail Awards"? Like, in a similar manner that bad movies getting mockawards called Golden Razzies. I feel that "Fail Awards" is a bit uncreative and doesn't nicely roll it off the tongue. I know we've used it for quite some time but, hey, change I guess.

We could even design a nice graphic around a particular design of the trophy award to decorate the OP of the thread. I think that would make it more hilarious.

Just throwing suggestions out there, but we could give a Mario-theme to it, or maybe a hilariously bad wiki in-joke like Pirate Goomba or some entry off BJAODN or some of the badly translated Japanese bios (think Welcome with Bibbangs and Black Dude).

If a trophy for fail awards is being designed, it should definitely be made from Pink Gold.

Rename the Mario Awards the Pink Gold Peach awards while we're at it.

Shouldn't "Ignorance is Bliss" from White Knuckle Scorin' be added to M10 Favourite Song?

I can definitely bring it up in the meeting, and at the very least it can always be written in

Was there any internal discussion/outcome on this?

Yeah; we agreed it would be unnecessary to do. The Community Awards dossier is already displayed in The 'Shroom (of course), the Anniversary page, on the forum in several boards of varying interest, and in chat (irc and discord). A link directly on the Main Page specifically targets people who are assumed to otherwise be unaware of, or not interested in, those other parts of our community listed, and subsequently aren't the exact kind of informed votes we would want to draw in.
